Green Scheme 2

In Central London, volunteers travel by foot, bicycle or small electric van to rescue same-day food from restaurants, delis and cafes, before delivering the food direct to over 50 charities and schools.

Our walking and/or cycling routes all run from Old Street. Our electric vans run from Soho, Barbican and Victoria.

How the Central London operation works

With a full-on job and social life it’s easy to stay in a little bubble so volunteering at The Felix Project is actually a great way to counteract a busy life and provide perspective. I also really enjoy driving round beautiful parts of London, one of the very few benefits of lockdown has been having the roads to ourselves.
